I just had an ‘aha’ moment. We can solve all the pal’n around with Christianists who hate ‘the gays’ and expensive constitutional amendments and all that angst with a few simple amendments to the bible. Let’s amend it to fit the modern world simply by making men and women equal. The amended bible could be called the Queen James Version (QJV). Here are a couple of amendments to consider:
Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.
Genesis 2:24-25 KJV
Therefore shall a person leave his family, and shall cleave unto his spouse: and they shall be one flesh.
And they were both naked, the spouses, and were not ashamed.
Genesis 2:24-25 QJV
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind: it is abomination.
Leviticus 18:22 KJV
Thou shalt not lie with a person to whom thou is not sexually attracted: it is abomination.
Leviticus 18:22 QJV
Works for me.
